Seems that those single sockets "fits in the pocket". Next wave is blister packs with 6" cards.

Just print cards that you take to the register to buy the individual small tools.Blister packs came to my mind, too.
The killer is, on a cost basis, for many products, the printed paper card/label and plastic pack can cost as much as the item(s) inside. I doubt that's the case for a socket, but such packaging can still be a significant adder.
Plus, for the retailer, a blister-packaged socket will take much more shelf space, on the order of 3 or 4x. So that's yet another negative.
They do that at the drug stores now with cold medicines that contain ephedrine.Just print cards that you take to the register to buy the individual small tools.
The downside is they need to have a runner to get the small tools to the registers.
The upside is card racks take up less shelf space and the sockets etc don't walk out the door.
Don't think I have ever used a 1/4 drive breaker bar. Most times that I have used a 3/8 drive socket where a bar was needed(which is rare), I have put a 3/8 to 1/2 drive adapter to be able to use my 1/2 drive bar. With that being said, I have used a 3/8 drive ratchet with a box end wrench over the end in awkward places I could not otherwise get leverage.But does anybody really need a ¼" breaker bar?
That set is really nice, and the price - $22 - is incredible !Yeah, I have similar tools for brake pisons too. Last year, I went and bought a complete set of them, just so I always had the right tool going forward. I purchased this whole set, with a nice case for like $20:
Haven't had to use them yet since I bought them, but when the time comes, I'll be ready!
